To whom it may concern,


"In Mexico, any architectural work, regardless of its scale or relevance, requires the blessing of one of the Construction Workers' Unions. Almost in a religious way, we celebrate, directly or indirectly, an offering ritual to have your work consent. In return, a metallic sheet with black and red background and white labels are given, which gives faith in its approval.


"Ex-Voto" is a protest piece that makes direct reference to the corrupt and ill-conceived bureaucratic processes that surround the architectural work in our country, without distinguishing the individuality of the architectural practice, and making a call to encourage proactive processes, legitimate, and useful for society in general."
